I did the same contract group rate with a travel agent. From Canada, departing from multiple cities across the country, the 7-night all-inclusive (flight, accom, & transfers) ranged from $1530 - $1750 total. This is for the first week of April, and the contracted rate was available to book from August to December. Each guest just had to deposit $200 per person, and the remaining balance comes out in Feb. For Canadian brides, this is through Flight Centre, but they use Air Transat, since it's the only charter that does all-inclusive to Now Jade.

Just out of curiosity what are the rates you ladies are getting?
